Trek Geeks #190: Face of the Enemy


This week, we examine what is quite possibly the best Deanna Troi episode in all of Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Romulans…intrigue…defectors…kidnapping…and a surgically altered Deanna?! “Face of the Enemy” debuted in 1993 and it instantly became a favorite of fans everywhere.

Counselor Troi is kidnapped by Romulans and her appearance is changed so she can assume the identity of a Tal’Shiar operative to help dissidents defect to the Federation.

Meanwhile, a traitor to Starfleet returns and brings Jean-Luc Picard a message from Ambassador Spock and the Enterprise becomes part of this crucial mission.

We’ll discuss it all in this episode of Trek Geeks! From the development created for Deanna Troi to the amazing performance by Marina Sirtis! We love this episode, and we’ll tell you why!
